Greetings from Reunion Arena in the Lone Star state of Texas. Dallas is pretty muggy and Reunion Arena, antiquated 17,000-seat gem, is half empty. Surprising? GW’s first Sweet 16 game in 10 years is in about one hour and the GW brass is coming in. Not much Buff and blue to mention as of yet. GW brought along two team doctors, Kenneth Fine and another whose name slipped my mind. Atlantic 10 commish Linda Bruno was just talking to Coach McKeown. Steve Goff from The Washington Post is here as is WRGW Sports Director Vishal Aswani. Myself, Joanna Shapes and Ben Solomon are here from The Hatchet.
The first game between Purdue and Georgia is close and has been close all game. Who would GW rather play? Either team looks relatively beatable and the Colonials seem fired up. Stay tuned and pick up The Hatchet tomorrow to see how our deadline writing looks!
